Very bad print quality with Ultimaker 2 and Small Object

Recommended Posts

Posted · Very bad print quality with Ultimaker 2 and Small Object

I've a huge problem right now, and i really have no idea how to solve it. I'm trying to print a small cable holder, with is long a total of 53mm, but the quality of the print is quite bad, even at a very slow print speed (15mm/s).

I've tried increasing the temperature of the nozzle, but it seems like the material is getting dragged around a little bit, causing a very bad printing behavior.

Check this images to understand how it is working.




I've checked another thread and the forum about the issue, but I'm not able to solve it yet. Any idea?
